Today is Monday Feb.20, 2006 , and it is exactly 171 days that Mr. Ganji is in solitary confinement ( security cell Alef-2 with minimum living condition for a human being ). The last time he came out of prison for medical purposes was 9 months ago . The last meeting we had with him was 2 weeks ago.

Back pain, severe pain in knees, stomach pain , varicoses , low blood pressure, physical weakness.
She said it is exactly 28 days have left from his 6 years sentence.We are counting moments for the arrival of that day, I hope a time will come that i won't have to write what kind of oppression i and my children faced.
They think if they remove the name of Ganji from the media , their behaviour with Ganji and people like Ganji's will be forgotten.
